Everyone who knew Billy knew how he loved the Big Horn Mountains. He spent as much time as possible in the mountains whether he was hunting, camping or just taking a drive. His heart was as big as the mountains he loved, and he never resisted the opportunity to share his love of those mountains with family, friends and especially his grandchildren. He made new friends through his passion for golf, which showed through the personalization of his golf cart. Billy was one of the most thoughtful people, always giving his time to help others.
